when the while lights are only an

THE PREMS CLUB.
O, ihe lyres of the liars lie around with broken strings,
Kor the inspiration nectar has gone on Muse's wings;
And Pegasus is a camel that can live without ilie damp—
And the writer's of the sonnet have acquired writer's cramp.
Now no longer in the gloaming will our poets iry to pote,
For the f\res of their lyres won’t vibrate a frozen note—
All our writing men are saddened. In each eye there gleams a tear,
As they try to get inspired with a raisis in near-beer.
Ain’t It h—I that they neglected to lay in a stock in time,
So’s to be in a condition to indite some pickled rhyme?
It’s just the old, old story : That a fellow is a chump,
If he tries to court the Muses when he’s standing ’round the pump.
The club ain’t what it used to be when licker was on tap.
You’d hear a line almost divine from almost any chap;
But now they sit around and mope -and cuss out congress loo,
Because they think without a drink there’s nuihing else to do.
Shades of Gene Field, Jim Riley and Stanley Waterloo,
In our despair we do declare we often think of you;
And of the days and of the ways when you foregathered here;
Tis well you went ere this event deprived you of all cheer.
SLEEP IN rRANCE.
They sleep in peace, those boys of ours
Under the soil of France,
Neath winter snows and spring time flowers
And the breezes as they dance.
So let them rest, the lads so brave,
Yes, rest there side by side
With freedom’s flag to guard each brave
The flag for which they died.
They rest so well, the flag unstained
By greed or lust or tear.
They died for honor—well attained
For all we hold most dear.
So laddies sleep your last long sleep.
Where courage won the day
Mute memories for France to keep
Of all we had to pay.
Oh mothers, you, who gave your sons.
Be first to say, I know
My boy would lie where Freedom's guns
Laid hate forever low.
l-lis body may be Far away
His spirit's close to me.
So rest, dear lad, yes, rest for aye
In France across the sea."
She Makes Sunshine for Those
About Her and Sweeps the Cob
webs Out ol the Sky.
The jolly girl is born not made;
no training or endeavor can coun-
terFeit her. There are those, to
be sure, who affect jollity, but it is
only skin deep. The jolly girl is
jolly under adverse circn.iistances
in bad weather; when she liasn’t
a cent to her name; when she has
the toothache; when she has Inst
her situation: when she breaks her
needle; when her back hair tum
bles down in public; when she is
shopping, when her masculine
neigbor at the theatre goes out and
when he returns: when her bills
are due. She never seems to in
dulge in that feminine luxury "the
blues" and It is a mistake to sup
pose that she is noisy; there is jol
lity of the lady-like, aristocratic
son, as well as of the fish-wife or
The girl who makes up her
mind that jollity is the proper cue,
and that she will be lively
die usually overdose the
business; she thinks that it chiefly
consists in laughing and chattering
nonsense, that it is a manner oF
speech merely, than a quality of
the mind which disposes one to
make the besi oF everything, to
see the rainbow on the cloud and
Ihe silver lining behind it, to make
the wrinkle on the rose leaF a
cause of mirth. Some believe that
jollity is an affair of embonpoint;
but who has not been disappointed
itt finding the stout woman melan
choly and the thin one vivacious,
Ihe bilious person full of good
humor and the person whose di
gestion never gave a moment’s un.
easiness quite the reverse P The
jolly girl cannot suppress herself,
and assume sadness or pensivness;
languishing airs do not sit well up
on her, but show at a glance that
they are borrowed plumes. One
Is never dull with her. She has
that infinite variety which all the
world covets and loves. It may
be a desirable thing that those who
have not this natural grace should
cultivate and encourage it in them
selves and others, since it bright
ens aud strengthens life, makes
rough places smoother and pleas
ant places pleasanter. Possibly ii
is no special virtue in the jolly girl
any more than blue eyes in the
blonde maiden or red hair in the
Titanesque. Jollity flows from
her presence just as the nightin
gale's fluiitlg bubbles from . his
throat and enchants the world;
just as the poet pours forth his
song, "in profuse strains of un
premeditated an," just as the iree
blossoms, the grasses sprout, ihe
stars shine, without effort, without
design, with sincerity and con
stancy and sponianeity. Let her
be shipwrecked, or an invalid
stranded on a bed of pain yet she
does not lose or abate that peculiar
trait which makes sunshine for
those about her and sweeps the
cobwebs out of their sky.
The Dignity on Labor.—The
trouble with most young men is
that they do not understand ihe
dignity of manual labor, They do
not realize that honors and fortune
may be more readily gamed out
side of the learned professions than
in them; and that it is just as hon
orable to swing a hammer or to
hold a plow as it is to make a
speech in court or to amputate a
limb. The lesson young men
should be taught as early as possi
ble is that it Is not so much what s
man does for a living as how he
does it, and that manual labor is as
honorable as any other.
When a man wants to find fault
he is willing to spend all his time
looking for it if necessary.
All the world’s a stage and all
the supers imagine that they are

A letter makes a great difference in a

If the little word “alum” appears on

If the word ROYAL stands out bold

EARTH’S RICHEST RUBY HINES,
Center of World's Stars ol Prec-
ous Stones Is Known to Bs
Located In Upper Burma.
The world's ruby center is Mo-
gok, in upper Burma, some 70
miles north of Mandalay. Here
are the great ruby mines, one of
Burma’s most valuable monopolies
says the London Weekly Tele
graph. Indeed, not only does this
country produce the finest of these
coveted gems, but they are recov
ered in such quantities as to enable
her to dominate the market.
Few are aware that, weight for
weight, a^ruby is more valuable
than a diamond. It is estimated
that one the color of pigeon’s
blood, weighing five carats, will
sell for ten times the value of a
diamond of the same weight. Fur
thermore, the price increases with
the size of the stone.
As the "byon" or earth contain
ing the coveted gems, is taken
from the ground it is placed in a
great revolving tub. Here it is
screened and all loose earth re
moved by water. The residue is
then tipped on the sorting table.
A white overseer carefully exam
ines the pile, selecting the true
gems from the worthless debris.
If he's lucky he may at one sort
ing find gems worth many thou
sands of dollars, while on the oth
er hand the yield may be but a
hundred or two. The yearly out
put of rubies from these mines
totals about $400,000.
